Color Throwdown, Just Us Girls

Today I found something else I love to make. The flower on this card was so much fun. It was made with tissue paper that was inked and cut with Nestabilities. I got the idea from LeAnne at Wee Inkling. She made one for the Just Us Girls Challenge Week 4. You can watch a video tutorial, there, so check it out!
The colors for Color Throwdown #66 are Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant and Bordering Blue. I didn't have Bordering blue ink, just card stock. The flower was inked with Bashfull Blue. I really like the way the Bordering Blue looks silver. The flower would look much better in that color. So that is on my wish list for the next SU class. The center of the flower is a SU Build a Brad with an Elegant Eggplant center. The Sentiment is from CTMH and cut with Nestabilities. I embosssed the strips with a cuttlebug folder. I just love making these flowers. They are easy and look great, and because they are tissue paper they will go in an envelope easily.
Thanks for stopping and please let me know what you think.

Linda, this is so pretty! You're right, Bordering Blue has that silvery tone that looks so nice, but this is just as gorgeous! I love your embossed panels, too, carries the floral theme right on through the card! Thanks for playing CTD with us this week!
